    I added to Galois connection the remark that some authors call an adjunction between posets a *monotone Galois connection* and a dual adjunction between posets an *antitone Galois connection*.

    I can’t see why this section isn’t displaying properly. Or is it just my browser?

    Edit: Ah, I fixed the missing ’]’.

    At the end of the article, at the beginning of the References section, the word "concent" should be "concept", no?

    6. References
    The concent is due to

    Øystein Ore, Galois connexions , Trans. AMS 55 (1944) pp.493-513. (pdf)

    Re 5: it’s also one of the possible English spellings, though a pretty dated one (Wiktionary has attestations; it’s also in the title of the paper introducing Dijkstra’s algorithm, BTW)
